Not for young children

James R. Lenhart, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this game because it got great reviews and some people had it on their lists for their 6-7 year old. Well, this game is WAY TOO ADVANCED for a 6 year old... more like 16! It requires geometry, etc for some of the puzzles! And, my daughter is no dummy...

Not A Great Game

  • Summary: I was very disappointed in this game. I expected it to be such a wonderful game seeing how I've played it before on my friend's DS before I got mine, but it was absolutely terrible! The puzzles are really hard and all you do is walk around the town of St. Mystere doing puzzles.

GOOD FOR A WHILE, UNTIL THE MYSTERY IS SOLVED

J. Sager, Amazon
1 May 2009
  • Summary: I was excited to start this game and thought the mystery would last for a while, at least more than a week of playing. Unfortunately, after the mystery is solved, all you're left with are the puzzles, which actually get really annoying after a while. Also, the mystery practically solves itself.

Not the best Layton game

Evan H., Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: This was the first Professor Layton game, and while it explains the origins of a few characters (Flora, most notably), I really only recommend that you play this if you're a big Layton fan and want to play all the games, or if this is the very first one you're playing.

Finding its voice...

Patrick Henry, Amazon
6 September 2008
  • Summary: I played this one AFTER "Diabolical Box" and "Unwound Future." I was a little disappointed in the puzzle selections after experiencing the quality of the sequels, but it's still worth playing every nook and cranny!

My dear Luke, a true gentlemen always tells the truth!

6 September 2008
  • Summary: Professor Layton and The Curious Village is a simple adventure game for the DS that is driven by abstractly related puzzles and the player's own determination to unravel the "mystery" of the plot.

Alas, Unbalanced

Miss Mausie, Amazon
31 August 2008
  • Summary: I love most of this game -- the story, the translation, the music and voice acting, the artwork, the fact that if you can read and hold the stylus, you can play it. If I love it, why do I only give it an overall 3 stars? Because the puzzles themselves are deeply unbalanced.
